Chinooks and Growlers Game Foiled by Fog

On Monday, the weather continued to affect playing conditions at Kapco Park in Mequon, Wis. The game was delayed before its 6:35 p.m. start, and eventually cancelled before any play.

About 7:05 p.m., the fog started to clear. Northwoods League officials and Chinooks management hoped for a 7:45 p.m. start, but the conditions once again encompassed the field.

The game was called around 7:45 p.m. No official game reschedule has been announced. However, a doubleheader can be expected when the Kalamazoo Growlers return to Lakeshore on August 2 or 3.

Fans can exchange their June 23 tickets for any remaining regular-season home games (based on availability). Tickets can be exchanged at the Chinooks office at 995 Badger Circle Grafton, WI 53024 or at the stadium box office on game nights. The stadium box office opens one hour before scheduled game times. 

The Chinooks will take on the Battle Creek Bombers on Tuesday (6:35 p.m.) and Wednesday (6:35 p.m.) The Eau Claire Express will play the Chinooks in Mequon on Thursday (6:35 p.m.) and Friday (7:05 p.m.).
